Isn't datatype interoperability is an issue only for RELAX NG
implementations, not for the language itself -- since it doesn't have a
datatype system of its own? Wording in the current tutorial[1] draft is:

  RELAX NG allows patterns to reference externally-defined datatypes,
  such as those defined by W3C XML Schema Part 2. RELAX NG
  implementations may differ in what datatypes they support. You must
  use datatypes that are supported by the implementation you plan to use.

So seems the language itself could be described as "datatype neutral".
